Haha my goal is to just build a stout car for a good price, have a ton of fun both building/designing it and racing it, learn a lot, and make new friends. Can't really ask for anything more than that.

ya we will start tonight.


i have to stop at verizon.  Need to sit infront of a laptop and draw / figure some stuff.


Every buggy i have built has a "one Pager" that defines all.

Looking at trans adapters and it seems you can buy the hub adapter:

Or the same hub adapter with flex plate:

Smike weren't you saying you wished you did the flex plate as well or something? Looks like $100 more for flex plate option.

i cant find the PN, but i bought the adaptor that requires longer bolts.  it was about 80$ total.


If i ever do another one, id go with the full flexplate.  I never had input seal issues till this motor. you have to drill out new holes on the existing plate to make it fit.  Small change i screwed that up enough to make a seal angry.  Not worth the hassel of chance to not do the flex plate next time.
